i've got it. man o man. after a week long hospital stay, i was ready for the real world. and now on top of that a week of being stuck in the house because of the snow...crazy i tell 'ya. i'm going crazy. it has been really nice having Daddy around. sometimes Aunt Goo makes the trek from her neighborhood and that's fun too. and Wyatt is handling great. sleeping in, lots of naps. what a trooper. i think he likes having everyone around! we've taken a few shots of the silliness that has kept us busy for the last 7 (SEVEN!!!!) days!

actually, more like cough, barf, wahhhhhhh all the way home. but we are here. and luckily it's only a 15 minute trip! they released Wyatt last night from Children's with a few new meds and a little less congestion. not much though, he is still raspy and full of mucous (ew, too much information?), but is in a much better mood and eating better as well. i hope to keep him healthier, somehow, and make the best of a missed week of work. for now we are all happy to be sleeping at home! thanks for the well wishes everyone!

thanks for all the comments about Wyatt's newest endeavor, yoga. we've had to put his practice sessions on hold for the past 4 days - we are back at Children's with another bout of respiratory illness. i'm not specifying the type because the truth is i really don't know if it's pneumonia, croup or whatever. didn't you ask? (you might ask) of course. it's never clear. everything is pneumonia-like, a possibility of this, a chance of that. and since Wyatt's diagnosis complicates most areas of his functioning, it slows the processes down. anyway, we are surviving. if only i could sleep at night, this would be like a vacation for me. the new Children's Hospital here in Pittsburgh is quite comfortable. a sushi bar in the cafeteria, a view of the city that anyone would pay an arm and a leg for. i have hours upon hours to kill, with no house to clean and no paperwork to complete. but since i'm dog tired i am not enjoying myself. Wyatt isn't either. he hasn't been his happy, smiley self lately and it stinks to see him so crabby. but we started him back on the full feed a few hours ago and he hasn't needed any oxygen for 24 hours....so here's hoping we are home tomorrow! wish us luck!
